NA-AION occurs in working-age adults where high visual demands are typically present. 1 Management is; challenging, as currently there is no effective medical or surgical intervention. With bilateral involvement and vision impairment, low vision rehabilitation (LVR) remains the primary intervention to improve visual ability. Despite stable visual impairment findings over time (visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, visual field), patients with AION may perceive worsening of vision and visual ability over time making ongoing LVR tailored to the individuals needs beneficial for the motivated patient.
